Lots of churches are friendly. But it is a higher commitment to love people. That’s the commitment. To love each other.
Loving God is a higher and deeper commitment than believing in him. The Christian Calling is not a calling for safety, but a calling to love.
When you are committed to be loving, you do riskier things but that’s what the calling is for. Jesus had twelve disciples and one of them was Judas. To commit to love is to take risks.
Faith in God will carry you through. We do not enter into life’s situations thinking that bad things won’t happen, but knowing that we will not be alone if they do. How we react to events defines us, not the event itself.
